Insight: Boston Marathon Explosion / Cancer Prevention Study / "Our Easy Life" / Trombonist Steve Turre

Published April 16, 2013

Boston Marathon Explosion - Two bombs exploded yesterday near the finish line of the Boston Marathon. At least three people have been killed and more than 150 wounded. Many Northern Californians were in the city for the legendary race and we'll check in with some of them. We'll also talk with an organizer of the California International Marathon, which is held in Sacramento every December and is many runners' favorite qualifier for the Boston Marathon.

Cancer Prevention Study - Residents of Sacramento and surrounding communities have an opportunity to participate in a historic study that has the potential to change the face of cancer for future generations. Men and women between the ages of 30 and 65 who have never been diagnosed with cancer are needed to participate in the American Cancer Society's Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3). CPS-3 will enroll a diverse population of 300,000 people across the United States and Puerto Rico. These volunteers will help researchers better understand the lifestyle, environmental, and genetic factors that cause or prevent cancer. We'll talk about it with Kevin Snipes, incoming President for the American Cancer Society / California Division and Chief of the Cancer Surveillance and Research Branch for the California Department of Public Health.

"Our Easy Life" - Have you ever wondered why there are 12 months in a year? Or why the computer keyboard is not in alphabetical order? Kevin Hicks, a stockton attorney and now self published author, answers these questions and more in his new book, "Our Easy Life: How We Systematically Avoid Chaos."

Trombonist Steve Turre - Renowned jazz trombonist and Sac State Alumni Steve Turre is returning to his alma mater this week to participate in the Festival of the Arts. We'll talk with musical innovator about his diverse career and what it's like to a standing member of the Saturday Night Live Band.
